Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
The SMISA Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between St. Mirren and Hearts. The Saints kicked off the new Premiership campaign with a 2-2 with Dundee despite the fact that Max Anderson was sent off after 69 minutes for the hosts. St. Mirren aim to record their first win of the season this weekend, but they will have a big fish to fry in Saturday’s clash.
Hearts, on the other hand, did well to shock title-chasing Celtic in their opener. The visitors aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, and given St. Mirren’s shaky defence, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Robbie Neilson’s troops. The talented tactician should have a full squad to choose from, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the visiting team this time out.
Highlighted Player (Marcus Fraser):
Marcus Fraser is a Scottish footballer who plays for Ross County as a defender. Fraser is a product of Celtic football school, but he made no more than one appearance for the Hoops in the Scottish Premier League. He played his only game for the Scottish giants in a 3-1 win at Inverness on February 9, 2013.
After ending his loan spell with Cowdenbeath, Marcus Fraser signed a deal with Ross County in 2015. Over the years, the defender has established himself as a first-team regular with the Staggies, making 26 appearances in the Scottish top flight last term.
Speaking of his international career, Fraser has five caps for the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. His main position on the field is a right-back, but he is capable of producing good performances as a centre-back as well. Marcus Fraser was born in Bishopbriggs, Scotland, on June 23, 1994.
Highlighted Team (Hearts):
Founded in 1874, Hearts are professional football club that compete in the Scotland Premiership. The Jam Tarts welcome their rivals at Tynecastle Park Gorgie, the stadium which can hold up to 20,000 spectators.
While the original Hearts strip was all white shirts and trousers with maroon trimmings, the club’s current home kit is all maroon with a white-collar. Hearts have won the Scottish Premier League title four times (1894/95, 1896/97, 1957/58, 1959/60), but they have been in Celtic and Rangers’ shadows in the 21st century. Hibernian are considered the club’s fiercest rivals. The two teams first met back in 1875 on Christmas Day, with Hearts winning the match 1-0. The Tynecastle Park Gorgie recorded their biggest win in 1880, with the team rolling over Anchor 21-0 in the FA Cup.
The club’s heaviest defeat came eight years later as Hearts were beaten by Vale of Leven 8-1 in the Scottish Cup. John Robertson is leading the club’s all-time goal-scoring chart, with the left winger netting 214 goals for the club.
